was joined by joint chiefs chairman mike mullen. today senate majority leader harry reid is railing members to follow the lead of the house, which voted for repeal in may. now, it's important to note that capitol hill isn't the only battleground. less than two weeks ago a federal judge in california declared don't ask, don't tell to be unconstitutional. the judge says it violates the first and fifth amendment rights of gay and lesbian service members and wrote defendants face the burden at trial of showing the don't ask, don't tell act was necessary to significantly further the government's important interests in military readiness and unit cohesion. defendants failed to meet that burden. nevertheless, the policy remains pending further court action, or congressional action. that brings me to the main event. main, by the way, as in the maine state represented in the senate by susan collins and olympia snowe, considered the best hope of don't ask, don't tell opponents to break with gop leaders and vote for repeal. and that is why this woman -- wait for it. there you go. lady gaga, plans a ra
